    That's a PHISHING mail and not from PayPal. If you used the "Dispute transaction"-link in the email and filled in your info, you're in trouble.

    It's a scam. Transaction "91R34260F3342435P" isn't a real transaction. The idea of this scam is to click on the link in the e-mail that says "Dispute this claim". PayPal won't send you information like if you aren't registered with them. Having multiple e-mail accounts makes this scam pretty clear... as I don't have a PayPal account registered to the particular e-mail address I recieved this message on.

    Bottom line. It's a scam and pretty stupid one at that.

    I Don't know who in the Hell you are. But If you Charge Anything on our Credit Card You will Pay for It. So Speak English on What Exactly I'm Paying for. And only If I pay for It.

    I have recieved another reciept #[protected] from Nancy L. Cornell I have told you people at Pay-Pal to cancel all info and any membership you think I have with you and that I will seek legal means of stopping your ### if you continue with this crap. There will be no way I'm going to pay these charges now or in the future. I am thinking of sending you a virus that will open the next time you get a hit on my name, hopefully frying your hard drives world wide... PLease do not screw around with me any longer...I would suggest you remove all traces of my name and any other info that is of concern to me...the transaction ID:20433666FG486722N total $169.95 product #922-116 buyer Nancy L. Cornell You need to fix this now and as I said I do not want to here from you agian. NOW AM I CLEAR ON THIS...MAKE IT HAPPEN

    i have an actual paypel email and it says on the bottom:

    How do I know this is not a Spoof email?
    Spoof or 'phishing' emails tend to have generic greetings such as "Dear PayPal member". Emails from PayPal will always address you by your first and last name. Find out more here

    If anyone is so stupid to do anything more that delete this email scam then they should not be online. Come on people ... get with the program.

    I've won 17 lotto's in the last month and every one wants me to send them money before I get my winnings. What do you think I should do?

    Your Name Here Nov 03, 2008

    This email did NOT come from PayPal - it is a phishing scam. They don't get your information BEFORE the fact. They're hoping you'll respond to their email.

    The purpose is to get you to click the "Dispute Charge" button or send them an email response. Click the Dispute Charge button, and Spyware is loaded onto your computer.

    Within seconds, they can retrieve all your private information from the hard drive, and access your IP address. Then they wait for you to make an online financial transactions - and they get your account numbers and passwords.

    Email a response back, and you can bet - the email isn't going to PayPal. Again, you're leaving yourself wide open for trouble.

    What do I do if I get one of these emails??

    1) Delete ALL ambiguous email. If your name (Dear NAME) isn't on it, it's 99.44% phishing scam.

    2) PayPal email: Forward a copy of the email to their Fraud Division. The real PayPal website will have an email address to forward to. They respond promptly.

    3) Hit the Reply button for the suspicious email - but DON'T REPLY. Compare the "TO" Address on your new email with the address they used to Send the email. More likely than not, the two email addresses WILL NOT MATCH.

    4) If you've responded to the suspicious email: Use a reputable program to Search and Destroy the Spyware. If you're unsure, visit your local computer store. The Computer Geeks at Best Buy should be able to remove any harmful files and tracking cookies.
    Good luck!

    Hi
    I just got the email too, so I emailed Researchanyone.com. This is their repsonse


    "Hi Steve
    The email you are getting is not affiliated with our company. Someone is sending out emails claiming they have charge the Paypal with $1xx.xx amount. If you see this email do not click on any links within the email. The link is trying to steal your Paypal pssword and username. Our website has a paypal buy it now button which is pre-set to $19.95 and changes cannot be made. The only amount you can make to our company is $19.95. Whatever other amount you see in an email is wrong and fake. When you receive emails as these, if you check who sent it to you, you will notice it is not directly from PayPal. They are pretending to be from Paypal but of course they are not. Do not fall for this and again please do not click on any links in the e-mail."


    Hope this helps
